Uncharted’s Amy Hennig and Todd Stashwick Doing Research for New Star Wars Game; Dead Space 3 Director Involved

on June 4, 2014 10:10 AM

After leaving Naughty Dog, former Uncharted Creative Director Amy Hennig joined Visceral Games to work in the same role on a new Star Wars game, which from what we gathered from career opportunity ads should be another third-person action/adventure. Shortly after, Todd Stashwick, that many know as the narrator of the PS4 Uncharted teaser shown last year, joined her as co-writer.

Looks like at the moment they’re doing research for the game right at the source, in the archives of Gorge Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch, as tweeted by Stashwick.

At Skywalker Ranch with @amy_hennig. Digging into the research library. Tomorrow we hit the archives. #hereswherethefunbegins

At the Lucasfilm archives saw the original Ralph Mcquarrie concept art. Breathtaking. I only wept twice. Ask @amy_hennig. Ok…maybe thrice

Henning Herself tweeted about it, also dropping an interesting piece of information:

Overwhelmingly inspiring day in the Lucasfilm archives at Skywalker Ranch with @ToddStashwick and Ben Wanat. I might’ve teared up a little.

If you’re wondering who Ben Wanat is, he covered the role of Creative Director of Dead Space 3, and Production Designer of Dead Space and Dead Space 2. Evidently Wanat is involved in the project as well. We don’t have precise information on his new role, but he might possibly take up the Producer seat again, or co-direct the game with Hennig.

It’s currently unknown if the game will have any presence at E3, even if it seems to be in the preliminary production phase, so it might be too early for a showing.
